Draft at Hell’s Kitchen, Norfolk, VA. Clear medium orange body, no head. Nose of nutmeg. Sweet, soft body with lots of allspice and nutmeg. Somewhat flat, but well-balanced and the sweetness is short-lived and not syrupy.

Bottle: Muddled copper, honing in on full opacity with an off-white, slightly less than an inch-thick head on top. Recedes at a normal pace. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, graham cracker, caramel malt, toasted bread, small hint of apple pie spice (cardamom? allspice?), & a touch of leafy hoppage closing things out. Nice. Nutmeg is heaviest on the palate with cinnamon at a close second. Small leafy bitterness from the hops that fades into a soft, apple-like sweetness with an overshadow of sweet caramel & toasted graham cracker malts. Slight ginger spice works its way into the mix adding a cookie vibe in the final moments. Malty finish of caramel & nutmeg, though not overly sweet. Semi-creamy mouth feel. A really nice pumpkin ale, better than most of the "easily" available offerings in my area.

Long time want, courtesy of trade with Ernesto987. I’m still looking for any pumpkin beer to compete with Pumking. This isn’t it. The nose is strong with pumpkin, spices, cinnamon in particular. The appearance is a translucent if slightly cloudy amber, white head. The flavor is just like the aroma. Medium in body, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is spicy, pine. Solid performer, but it just doesn’t ascend above most other pumpkin beers. Thanks Ernesto.

Growler shared by Mike at Dmac’s house. Pours out a nice orange/copper color with a small fading head. Aroma is of pumpkin spice, sweet pumpkin pie and some sugary sweetness. Taste is pumpkin spice, ah hell enough with that, its a solid pumpkin, good pie filling-like taste, some spice. Solid.

Cloudy deep orange pour with brown tint ... very light off white head very sweet and pumpkin spice with light pie crust in the aroma ... taste is very sweet and spicy lots of sugar and pumpkin spice in this one mostly cinnamon and some clove that lingers into the finish ... not a bad pumpkin brew if you like the sweeter side
